    Aimez-Moi Comme Je Suis

    By Jean Jacques for CARON




    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Good morning, everyone! Our thread is very visual today!
    I'm synching with Concentré de Pamplemousse Rose by Hermes - it's all about vetiver and not grapefruit to my nose (though there are some peels, too).
    Have a nice day!

    Good morning all !. ExtremeK, glad to hear my other purchase from Anna Zworykina made your shortlist

    I have a number of options available for Roberto's vetiver synch but the choice was an easy one. It is Jenny's birthday today so I can kill two birds with one stone - wear something I know she really likes while paying tribute to a great BNer


    Creed - Original Vetiver.

    Synching for Roberto in Lolita Lempicka.

    Vetiver is a useful fixative in perfumery and used to stabilise
    more volatile or deiicate ingrediets. It is used mainly in male-
    oriented perfumes but I have a few feminine scents that use it too -
    Rive Gauche, Loliita Lempicka, Habanita and Le Baiser du Dragon.

    It is found in India and some of the French Polynesian islands (i.e. Tahiti)
    In SriLanka it is called Khus. It smells earthy, leathery and smoky like grass
    on a warm day.

    Salutations to everyone,

    I thought I had an appointment this morning, but I was wrong. It’s next week. Time to make waffles and slice some peaches, nectarines, and plums, add some halved fresh figs from the big tree outside, and have a leisurely breakfast on the deck.

    I’m wearing Superstitious. I think it may have Vetiver. If it doesn’t, I will join in later. I love Vetiver. Happy Friday all!

    In Sync in:

    Oud Luwak by Areej le Dore



    Buried underneath the Maroke oud and the coffee is a very strident and noticeable Indonesian vetiver absolute. You have to lightly apply it to detect it - this scent can quickly overwhelm me in the heat.

    I would have worn Guerlain Vetiver Eau de Cologne (my reference vetiver) but I am all out at the moment. Another vetiver that I think needs more hype: the newer Les Colognes: Vetiver by Annick Goutal. It's wonderful stuff.

    Happy Birthday to Jenny!

    I'm trying to find my sample of Fat Electrician for the sync. If I can't find it, I'll be syncing in my dwindling 1ml sample of the incomparable Vero Profumo Onda Voile d'Extrait. That was one gorgeous fragrance. I really wish I had purchased a bottle.

    Happy Friday, everyone!

    It's a lovely blustery rainy day here and I am wearing Amouage Gold. Yesterday slid by unscented as I got a flu shot and ran errands and grocery-shopped, and by the time I thought of perfume it was too late.
    If you can't smell me from six feet away, I'm not wearing enough.
